A Word from our Executive Director


            Thank you for your interest in RHMA! Whether you are new to rural America or a veteran, please take a look around . . . (click here to continue)



RHMA has received countless calls and emails in recent years from rural churches looking for a pastor. We have come to the conclusion that one thing we can do to help is provide a platform for such churches. Note that this is a listing of churches, not of pastors looking for churches. Click here for more information, and feel free to help us spread the word to evangelical churches and pastors who might find this helpful.
